    can someone let me know how much a shotgun barrel can be cut off and still be legal? i may have a bead on a great deal on a rem. 1100 to pick up instead of an 870. :x:

    does anyone sell mag extensions for 1100s? :o

    IIRC, it's 18" from the face of the bolt.

    So with the slide foward, drop a dowel down into the barrel. I'd go for 18.5" just to be safe.

    either gun will double as HD & Hunting (Deer & Squirrel) so I'd end up needing a 28" barrel and an 18" whatever barrel

    i can get a nib 870hd for 300+tax or a used 1100 for 250ish

    for the 870 id just need a barrel and whatever it takes to convert it back to 2+1 or 3+1 whatever. if i get the 1100 i have to get another barrel to cut down to 18" plus a black synthetic stock set. the 870 is synthetic, obviously. the 1100 comes with wood & mossy oak synthetic furniture so i could probably trade off the wood for black synthetic.

    18 should be fine for HD. Save the 200 dollars for somethin else.
